Meggitt Training Systems, a provider of integrated live-fire and virtual weapons training products and services for armed forces and law enforcement, recently introduced the FATS 300MIL immersive weapons training system.

The company's FATS® 100MIL is currently the foundation for the U.S. Army's Engagement Skills Trainer II program of record. The FATS 100MIL is a major expansion in weapons training capability, introducing features such as advanced game engine 3D marksmanship, enhanced diagnostics with intelligent automatic coaching and collective training. The system provides an array of functionality for both instructor and trainee, delivering solid weapon-handling and shot-placement analytics, coaching tools that automatically highlight trainee results for reinforcement or correction, and enhanced graphic capabilities for an all-encompassing immersive training platform. Meggitt was first awarded the EST II contract in 2014 and installed the last of 895 systems based on the FATS 100MIL at Ft. Bragg, N.C., on April 14, 2018.

The new, 300-degree FATS 300MIL, one of Meggitt's newest offerings, is designed to deliver even more realism through a fully immersive experience. The FATS 300MIL's immersion is provided via five 150“x84” flat screens arranged in a hexagonal format, 5.1 audio, plus sounds in any direction added by the operator for increased realism. The system also has ultra-short-throw projectors that allow the trainee unprecedented distance to the entity being engaged, all while maintaining a smaller footprint than rear-projection systems. In recent months, Meggitt has created three domestic regional hubs featuring the FATS 300LE for law enforcement applications.

Both the FATS 100MIL and 300MIL interface with a variety of firearms, including Meggitt's wireless BlueFire® weapons. Meggitt's live-fire offerings include infantry and armor targets, outdoor and indoor range solutions, target retrieval and training systems, shooting stalls, bullet traps, range control systems, as well as range planning and design.

Meggitt Training Systems also manufactures the SHOTT™ House and Road Range™. The former stands for Shoot House Optimized for Tactical Training and provides warfighters the opportunity to practice securing a structure using live weapons. The latter is a ballistically secure mobile trailer, fully equipped to produce a three-position, state-of-the-art, live-fire range for training anywhere. Both the SHOTT House and Road Range can be equipped with a FATS virtual training system to provide a comprehensive solution for marksmanship, sustainment and judgmental training, including force escalation and de-escalation.

Currently, over 13,600 Meggitt live-fire ranges and 5,100 virtual systems are fielded internationally, providing judgmental, situational awareness and marksmanship training to the armed forces, law enforcement and security organizations.
